Causes, Symptoms and Treatment of Gout On Legs

What is gout?

Gout is a metabolic disease in which salts of uric acid( known as urate) are deposited in the joints. Gout is otherwise called "disease of kings", an ancient disease that was known even in the time of Hippocrates. Now gout is considered a rare disease, it affects 3 people out of 1000. And most often it affects men over the age of 40, in women it is most often manifested after menopause. Gout itself is one of the types of joint diseases caused by the deposition of salts.

All gums suffer from gout, ranging from the joints of the fingers to the joints of the toes.

It was known even in the time of Hippocrates and is called "disease of kings" because the main source of its occurrence is the excess in food and alcoholic beverages. Gout is often chronic.


Causes of gout

Gout

The cause of gout is an elevated and persistent level of uric acid in the blood. During the course of the disease, urate crystals( a derivative of uric acid) are deposited in the joints, organs and other body systems. Sodium urate crystallizes and small particles are deposited in the joints, which ultimately leads to partial or complete destruction of the joint. For the same reason, such situations are called microcrystalline.

A large amount of uric acid in the body can be for two reasons: the first reason is when healthy kidneys can not cope with the withdrawal of an unusually large amount of uric acid, the second reason is when uric acid is released in normal amounts, but the kidneys are unable to remove it.

Every year, more gout is getting sick. Doctors explain this phenomenon by the fact that in recent years people are more likely to consume food rich in purines( for example, meat, fatty fish) and a huge amount of alcoholic products. This is confirmed by the fact that during wars the percentage of people suffering from gout fell sharply due to the fact that meat products, and, especially, alcohol, it was very difficult to get.


Symptoms of gout

The symptom of gout is a common attack of gouty arthritis - it is usually an inflammation of one joint, most often it turns out to be the joint of the big toe, knee or ankle. Usually, a gout attack occurs in the early morning or at night, it manifests itself in the form of unexpected severe pressing pain in one or another joint, the affected joint swells up, the temperature in the joint area rises, the skin turns red and starts to shine. Usually during the day the pain becomes a little less, but by the night it again intensifies, the duration of a gout attack lasts from two to three days to a week, sometimes more. With a repeated attack in this inflammation, other joints may be involved, this can lead to partial destruction of the joint.

Signs of gout is the appearance on the hands or feet of unusual growths, while the level of uric acid is significantly increased. When growths, in other words, tofusi burst, a person can see whitish crystals of uric acid. The patient can feel quite intense pain in the affected areas. Such salt deposits in the joints interfere with a full life.

Possible complications of

The main and most severe complication of gout is the appearance of gouty arthritis, it is also possible the occurrence of urolithiasis, in which the resulting stones consist of urate or crystallized uric acid.

Gouty nodes , also called "tophi" - it's nothing more than conglomerates of sodium urate crystals that have the ability to be deposited in all parts of the body. And in cases where such deposits get stuck in the joints or periarticular tissues, the immune response occurs, as these deposits are perceived by the body as a foreign body, which causes the accumulation of leukocytes and begins a strong inflammation called gouty arthritis.

It is worth paying special attention to the fact that gout-stones in the kidneys can become the main cause of kidney failure and can eventually lead to death.

Pain with gout

To understand the beginning of a gout you can by sudden pain in the joint. They are accompanied by severe redness, swelling and heat."Burn" can not only hit the place, but also the area of ​​the body in the immediate vicinity. At the same time, the body temperature can rise to 39-40 degrees. Symptoms in most cases develop within an hour. Most often, this affects the big toe. Ordinary pain medications, such as aspirin, will not help.

Pain, as a rule, begins at night and becomes, in practice, unbearable. In the daytime there is often some improvement, the pain recedes, but do not think that everything has passed. Such acute symptoms can torment the patient for about a week.


Gout in men on legs

Gout on legs

Gout is a chronic disease. Cure it completely impossible. This ailment often manifests itself on the feet. After the onset of the disease, the symptoms may recur after six months or a year. The disease can go into a dormant state, but, without any doubt, will make itself felt. With each attack, the time between them will be reduced. Gout will return to the person more and more often.

Damaged places on the legs are often destroyed more and more, the disease can affect the neighboring joints. With a long illness over time in the affected areas, under the skin may appear peculiar hillocks, which are called "gouty nodes" or "tofusi."

This is due to the fact that the body begins to perceive large salt deposits in the joints on the legs as a foreign body, the immunity begins to inevitably react - to accumulate leukocytes, after which a strong inflammation begins. Sometimes tofusov burst and out of them stand out whitish dust - crystals of uric acid.

Often gout develops in old age. In men, it occurs much more often and at an earlier age. The male population is susceptible to this disease by the age of 40.It should be noted that women begin to suffer from gout closer to 55, mainly after menopause, when the amount of estrogen, female hormones, is sharply reduced in the body. Children and young guys are practically not prone to gout. There are rare exceptions, in cases of hereditary impairment of uric acid metabolism.


The role of uric acid in the development of gout

This disease severely impairs metabolism. Purines enter the human body with food, but they are also produced by him. Next, purines are split into uric acid, which is excreted by the kidneys. In people with gout, the content of this uric acid is much higher than normal. Excess uric acid is deposited in those tissues where there is no blood supply. There, crystals are easier to gain a foothold.

The joints, cartilage and tendons are the most affected. As a result of this disease, not only these places, but also the kidneys suffer. Most often with gout develops urolithiasis, with a lower probability of the patient may suffer from renal colic.

This can occur for two reasons: if the uric acid is produced too much and the kidneys do not cope with the output volume, so it must be deposited in the human body. And the second reason is that the amount of uric acid is normal, but the kidneys can not remove it.

However, an elevated uric acid content in the body is not the only cause of gout. Here, several other factors play a decisive role: excessive nutrition, fatty food, overweight, sedentary lifestyle and hereditary predisposition.


What should I do if I have an acute attack of gout?

Even with adherence to recommendations, an acute attack will not be instantaneous. But this will significantly reduce the time during which the disease will torment the person. Mainly you need to observe strict bed rest. Painful limbs are best kept in an elevated position, for example, to lay a pillow under them.

In case of intolerable pain, ice can be applied. Then it is desirable to make a compress on a sore spot with Vishnevsky ointment or dimexide. In the intake of food, it is better to restrict yourself, you can use liquid porridge and vegetable broth. But drink is worth as much as possible alkaline drinks, for example, a decoction of oats, jelly, milk, mineral water or plain water, but with the addition of lemon juice( lemon juice dissolves uric acid deposits with rheumatism and gout).You need to drink at least 3 liters a day.

Any painkillers will not help. You can take modern anti-inflammatory drugs without steroids. If you took any preventive measures prescribed by your doctor, then the procedure should be continued.


Preventing exacerbations of gout

Prophylaxis of gout

Most often gout appears in places where the joint was injured. Therefore, treat such places with caution. Do not wear narrow and uncomfortable shoes, as it can severely damage the big toe, which so "loves" gout. Mainly to prevent the onset of gout attacks, diet and balanced nutrition are used.

The way of life will have to be completely revised, making it healthy. You should reconsider your taste preferences. Recommended diet number 6, which helps reduce the body's uric acid and urate. Strictly limited, or even excluded, products containing urine bases - the main source of urate. But poor purines, and therefore allowed milk, cheese, eggs, vegetables, fruits and cereals will not leave you hungry. The patient's diet should contain whole grains, eggs, vegetables, fruits, dairy products with a low fat content.

In food should restrict the intake of meat, fish, caviar, mushrooms, legumes. In addition, you need to limit consumption: smoked meat, marinade, anchovies, cauliflower, asparagus, sorrel, chocolate. Such a diet will lead to normalization of body weight and significantly reduce the burden on the joints during an exacerbation of gout.

Alcohol and smoking inhibit the excretion of uric acid from the body. Consequently, its crystals are more deposited in the joints. For prevention, alcohol should be completely excluded, especially beer, and also quit smoking. It is not recommended to drink tea, coffee, cocoa. In addition to dieting, it is worth doing at least once a week a fasting day with the use of a mono-product.

First of all, small joints are affected. Therefore, it is worth paying special attention to the development of their mobility. Attention should be concentrated on those sites where there are attacks of pain. Daily it is necessary to do gymnastics for joints. At first, it will be unusual, because the joints are harder to be mobile because of the deposits. It is recommended to be more often on air and to make walks.

Mineral water for gout

Mineral waters perfectly contribute to removing unnecessary purines from the body. Prefer alkaline and organic substances. They can be attributed primarily to Narzan, Essentuki and Borjomi. Remember that any liquid should be consumed at least 2.5 liters per day.


Treatment of gout

The diagnosis of "gout" means that a person will have to significantly change his lifestyle and constantly take medication, because it is unfortunately impossible to achieve a complete cure for this disease. However, timely treatment starts allows you to take gout under control, reduce painful attacks to a minimum and hedge against serious complications.

The main principle of treating gout is to control the level of uric acid in the body. For medical treatment should contact a doctor-rheumatologist. Its prescriptions will be aimed at reducing the volume of uric acid and its rapid removal from the body. Only a qualified specialist can prescribe medications that, with possible concomitant diseases, do not cause the greatest harm to health.

Most often, doctors prescribe for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for 1-2 weeks, such as methindole, diclofenac, butadione, indomethacin, naproxen. To quickly reduce the concentration of uric acid in the body, allopurinol, orotic acid, thiopurinol, hepatocatalcil, milurite can be discharged. To stop acute signs of gout, doctors recommend taking colchicine.

Drug therapy for gout is aimed at solving two main problems:

  • Reducing the level of uric acid in the patient's body;

  • Coping with acute inflammation and pain relief.

The earlier the patient undergoes the examination, reconsiders his habits and proceeds to treatment, the more likely it is to achieve a stable remission. Without adequate therapy, gout rapidly progresses, especially in patients of mature and advanced age, therefore, it is by no means impossible to reason on the principle of "caught-let-go".

Drug therapy for reducing uric acid level

Since the cause of gout is precisely the excess of uric acid, the solution of this problem in 90% of cases leads to the cessation of attacks of excruciating pain and allows you to count on a comfortable life in the future.

To reduce the level of uric acid in the body, the following drugs are used:

  • Allopurinol is a synthetic analogue of hypoxanthine. This substance inhibits the activity of the enzyme xanthine oxidase, responsible for the transformation of human hypoxanthine into xanthine, and then xanthine to uric acid. Thus, Allopurinol reduces the concentration of uric acid and its salts in all body environments, including blood, plasma, lymph and urine, and also promotes the gradual dissolution of already accumulated urate deposits in the kidneys, soft tissues and joints. However, this drug has a number of serious side effects and greatly increases the excretion of xanthine and hypoxanthine with urine, therefore Allopurinol is contraindicated in patients with severe renal failure. Nevertheless, for the majority of patients with gout, it remains to this day a preparation of the first order. Cost: 80-100 rubles per packing 30-50 tablets;

  • Phoebusostat( Ulorik, Adenurik) is a selective xanthine oxidase inhibitor that, unlike Allopurinol, does not affect other purine and pyramidal enzymes of the human body, besides it is excreted not by the kidneys, but by the liver. Phoebusostat is a relatively new drug for the treatment of gout, it is not produced in Russia, and in Western Europe and the United States it has undergone numerous clinical trials and has shown excellent results. Febuksostat for three months completely dissolves accumulations of crystals of salts of uric acid in the area of ​​fingers and elbows and effectively prevents their repeated formation. Can be used by patients with concomitant renal pathologies. It costs a drug not cheap - an average of 4500 to 7000 thousand rubles, depending on the country of origin;

  • Peloticase( Pegloticase, Krystexxa) is an infusion solution of enzymes that rapidly dissolve urate crystals( deposits of uric acid salts).It is used intravenously twice a month to stabilize the condition of patients with severe gout, which are not helped by traditional drugs. Anaphylactic shock is possible during the procedure. This is a very expensive drug that is produced exclusively abroad and is sold on order;

  • Probenecid( Santuril, BeneMid) is a drug that prevents re-absorption of uric acid in the renal tubules and enhances its excretion in the urine. Probenecid was originally used in complex antibacterial therapy to reduce the damage to the kidneys with antibiotics. But then it began to be prescribed for chronic gout and hyperuricemia( increased uric acid in the blood).It is important to understand that Probenecid enhances the excretion of uric acid, rather than suppresses its synthesis. Therefore, the treatment of gout with this drug is advisable only at the stage of remission. If you prescribe Probenecid to a patient with an acute inflammatory process, this will lead to active dissolution of already accumulated urates, an increase in the level of uric acid in the plasma, and, as a result, to attacks of excruciating pain. To avoid this risk, the first months of treatment with Probeecid gout are accompanied by additional hormonal and anti-inflammatory therapy. It costs a drug from 3500 to 7500 rubles.

Treatment of gout with decongestants and pain medications

Symptomatic treatment of gout is to stop seizures, relieve edema and pain, and is performed with the following drugs:

  • Colchicine( Colchicum, Colchimine) is an alkaloid, is released from the poisonous plants of the Melantie family. The most common source of colchicine is autumn autumnal. Colchicine inhibits the formation of leukotriene, stops the cell division of granulocytes, prevents the movement of leukocytes to the focus of inflammation and prevents urates( salts of uric acid) from crystallizing in the tissues. This drug acts as an emergency aid, and is recommended for admission in the first twelve hours after the onset of an acute attack of gout. It is necessary to drink immediately two tablets of Colchicine, an hour later - another, and then one tablet three times a day for a week. The drug very often causes unwanted reactions from the gastrointestinal tract - nausea, vomiting, loose stools. The average price of Colchicine in pharmacies is from 1,000 to 2,000 rubles;

  • Glucocorticoids( Cortisone, Hydrocortisone, Prednisone, Prednisolone) are synthetic analogues of human corticosteroids, that is, hormones produced by the adrenal cortex. Preparations of this group break the chain of natural reactions of the body to the interference of allergens, chemicals, bacteria, viruses and other foreign elements. Glucocorticoids quickly stop inflammation, but suppress immunity, so hormonal treatment of gout is advisable only if the expected benefit exceeds the potential risk. The cost of synthetic steroid hormones varies from 30 rubles( the oldest drug is Prednisolone), up to 1500 rubles( Cortisone);

  • NSAIDs( Aspirin, Analgin, Diclofenac, Ibuprofen) - Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are called so in order to emphasize their difference from hormones. However, the action of drugs in this group is somewhat similar to that of glucocorticoids. NSAIDs are non-selective inhibitors of cyclooxygenase, the enzyme responsible for the synthesis of thromboxane and prostaglandins. Thus, these drugs also suppress inflammation, but, unlike synthetic corticosteroids, do it more slowly, and are not immunosuppressants. For symptomatic treatment of gout, Diclofenac and Ibuprofen are most often used, the average cost is 10-30 rubles, the price of a popular generic( drug with the same active substance) Nurofen can reach 150 rubles.

How to prevent gout attacks?

To minimize the risk of new gout attacks, follow a few simple rules:

  • If possible, do not subject the joint to any load, periodically fix it in a raised position and apply ice for 15-30 minutes 2-3 times a day until the painsubsides;

  • Do not overuse aspirin, which can cause a jump in uric acid levels in the blood and aggravate the symptoms of gout;

  • Regularly measure the level of uric acid - it should not exceed 60 mg / l;

  • Every day, devote more than half an hour to physical education: walk, ride a bike, jog, dance, swim. In the morning, do exercises. Regardless of age and weight, patients with gout should give themselves daily physical exercise - sport works with gout more effectively than any medicine;

  • Drink at least two liters of clean water a day. So that the kidneys can excrete uric acid from the body, they need water first of all - not the liquid that the kidneys still need to filter( coffee, tea, juice), namely pure water. Without enough water, even healthy kidneys can not cope with the cleansing of the body;

  • Hand over the blood test to determine the level of the most important minerals and vitamins, and, if necessary, supplement the diet with a good vitamin and mineral complex. It is especially important for patients with gout to provide themselves with vitamin C;

  • Do not drink carbonated drinks with sodium benzoate and powdered juices with fructose, completely discard alcohol;

  • Revise your diet in favor of vegetables, fruits and cereals, eat no more than 120 grams of animal protein a day, avoid offal and fatty sausages.

The newest data on the treatment of gout

According to the latest data, obesity is most likely to predispose to gout caused by excessive consumption of fatty foods of animal origin. At risk, lovers of sausages, wursts, bacon and hamburgers. It is the excess of proteins that leads to the excess of uric acid, and the extra weight creates an increased strain on the joints and, thereby, accelerates the development of the inflammatory process.

American scientists have also established a direct link between deficiency of calcium and ascorbic acid and the development of gout. With age, these important substances for the body begin to be missed even by those people who lead a healthy lifestyle and do not complain about excess weight. Therefore after forty years it is necessary to annually be examined and take multivitamins prescribed by the doctor.

Recently, a new drug, suppressing the synthesis of uric acid - Benzobromarone, has been developed. Now there are active clinical trials of this drug, and in some Western countries it has already been allowed and put on stream. But before the novelty rests on the domestic pharmaceutical market, it is likely that a lot of time will pass.

It is also known about the experimental development of new non-hormonal anti-inflammatory drugs that directly affect the protein interleukin, which provokes gouty inflammation of the joints and tissues. But the exact timing of the appearance of these drugs in a free sale is difficult to call.

Allopurinol: pros and cons

The most popular drug for treating gout, Allopurinol, is increasingly being sharply criticized by modern doctors, since the large number of side effects and complications in its regular application raises questions about the advisability of such therapy. According to statistics, an average of one in two hundred and sixty patients with gout Allopurinol provokes sudden death as a result of renal coma or cardiac arrest.

Nevertheless, the largest international study of Allopurinol, the results of which have recently been published in the scientific journal Annals of the eumatic Diseases, proves the high effectiveness of the drug, moreover - the ability to prevent the onset of death. This study certainly does not disprove the presence of side effects and high risk for the kidneys, and does not negate the need for new development. But we must admit that Allopurinol is still a first-line drug in the treatment of gout, at least because of good knowledge, reliability and affordable price.

Scientists have tracked the fate of 5,927 patients who regularly took Allopurinol and the same number of patients treated with gout with other drugs that reduce uric acid levels. It turned out that the mortality in the first control group was 19% lower than in the second, and such results persist throughout the life of patients. That is, Allopurinol is still the most effective and safe drug, both for the treatment of acute, first-diagnosed gout, and for maintaining normal health in elderly patients with chronic disease.

Gout - Symptoms and treatment with folk remedies at home

Gout

Gout is a disease associated with the deposition of salt crystals in various tissues, mainly in the joints. It is believed that the disease is associated with either excessive formation of uric acid in the body, or with a decrease in the body's ability to remove this substance from the blood through the kidneys. Primary gout is probably hereditary and is caused by the presence of a pathological X chromosome. Thus, mainly men fall ill, and women are usually only carriers of the disease. Secondary gout is caused by other disorders, for example, leukemia or cancer of the blood-forming organs( bone marrow, liver, spleen).Secondary joint damage can also be caused by the use of certain drugs, including aspirin and a number of diuretics.

With gout in the synovial fluid of the joint, crystalline particles are formed, which leads to inflammation accompanied by pain. Typically, one joint, often the thumb of the foot, is affected. However, inflammation of other joints, such as the ankle and knee, is possible. Acute gout attacks without treatment last from 3 to 10 days or slightly longer.

In the chronic course of gout, frequent exacerbations occur, leading to persistent disorders in the joints. In the case of excess uric acid in the body, it is possible to form kidney stones, salt deposits in articular cartilage and other tissues, including in the skin. Such deposits are felt in the form of small nodules, which are called gouty cones. Nodules are found usually in people suffering from gout for 10 years or more.

The development of acute gout is facilitated by the use of alcohol, aspirin, diuretics, as well as severe stresses - both physical and emotional.

Symptoms of gout.

Acute gout attack, usually develops suddenly. In addition to intense pain in the joint, there are a number of other symptoms: redness of the skin, swelling and a rise in temperature in the joint region. The overall temperature may also increase. There is fatigue and headaches.

Traditional methods of treating gout.

Gout is a long-lasting disease that does not lend itself to complete cure. But with the help of medical measures the course of the disease can be controlled. During seizures and exacerbations prescribe drugs that reduce pain and inflammation, as well as reducing the content of uric acid in the body. To improve the joint in an acute period, you need to give him complete peace.

It is also important to monitor the constant normal body weight, as a sharp weight loss provokes an exacerbation of the disease. It is also necessary to drink plenty of water per day. The correct drinking regime prevents the formation of stones from uric acid crystals in the kidneys.

People suffering from gout should always have a kidney examination.

Gout - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment. MF

Gout is one of the oldest diseases described in medicine. In the 5th century BC, Hippocrates called "gout"( from the Greek words "under" - foot, "agra" - the trap) acute pains in the foot. It was called "the disease of kings and the king of diseases", a disease of aristocrats, even considered a sign of genius. She suffered such famous people as Leonardo da Vinci, Alexander of Macedon, many members of the Medici family from Florence, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin. And this list is far from complete.

Gout is a disease associated with impaired purine metabolism, which leads to an elevation in the blood of uric acid( hyperuricum) and its deposition in the tissues of the musculoskeletal system and internal organs.

In the human body, purine bases are broken down to uric acid and excreted by the kidneys. When the limit of uric acid concentration in tissues is exceeded, the deposition of its crystals in the form of sodium monoaurate in the joints, kidneys, soft tissues begins. There are clinical manifestations of arthritis( inflammation of the joint), there are formations in soft tissues( tofus), urate nephropathy( kidney damage) and nephrolithiasis( formation of kidney stones).

Changes in dietary habits and lifestyle led to the fact that in industrialized countries, 1-2% of the population suffers from gout.

Causes of gout

1. Drug administration: diuretics( thiazide diuretics), low doses of aspirin( 1 g per day), cyclosporins. Diseases and conditions that lead to the appearance of gout: diabetes, obesity, ischemic heart disease, arterial hypertension, metabolic syndrome, chronic renal failure, lead poisoning, organ transplantation, psoriasis, blood diseases. The intensification of gout is facilitated by intravenous contrast( with radiological examinations), trauma, surgical interventions. The risk of gout is extremely high among people who are in the habit of consuming products containing a large number of purine bases( fatty meats, seafood, alcoholic drinks, carbonated beverages).Gout more often develops in men( age 30-60 years), in women gout develops much less frequently and mainly in the menopausal period.

Symptoms of gout

Acute gouty arthritis begins with the lesion of one joint, most often the thumb of the foot. The emergence of acute arthritis can be preceded by heavy eating, alcohol intake, trauma, and surgical intervention. The disease develops suddenly, early in the morning there is a sharp pain, swelling and redness, the symptoms quickly increase and reach a peak within 24 - 48 hours. The pain becomes severe, patients often can not wear socks or touch a sick joint. Acute gout can be accompanied by an increase in body temperature to 38 degrees. Sharp weakness, general malaise. Even in the absence of treatment, exacerbation of gouty arthritis disappears gradually within 5 to 7 days.

Acute gouty arthritis

As the disease progresses and in the absence of adequate treatment, attacks of arthritis become more frequent and prolonged, new leg joints are involved. There is deformation of the joints due to nodular deposits and bone growths, tofusov.

Tofusi are uric acid crystals that are deposited in the periarticular tissues, are painless, dense nodules of yellowish color. Most often located in the area of ​​the auricles, elbows, ankles, joints of hands and feet.

Gradually appears joint stiffness, which makes it difficult for patients to move. The risk of fractures is high. Each new exacerbation of gouty arthritis significantly worsens the course of the disease, contributes to the rapid development of complications.

In general, uric acid is excreted by the kidneys, the deposition of uric acid salts in the renal pelvis leads to the development of urolithiasis. Departure of stones( stones) is manifested by intense pain in the lumbar region - renal colic.

Diagnosis of gout

1. Biochemical blood test. Detection of hyperuremia: increased uric acid levels in men over 0.42 mmol / l, in women over 0.36 mmol / l. Definitions of the level of the creatinine of the blood - for the detection of renal failure. Investigation of the synovial fluid of the affected joint. When a chemical or microscopic study determine the crystals of uric acid, in the sowing there is no bacterial flora. Radiography of the joints determines changes in chronic gouty arthritis. Kidney ultrasound. Detection of X-ray negative stones( stones).

Radiography of joints - gouty arthritis

Consultation: rheumatologist, nephrologist, surgeon.

Treatment of gout

Adherence to dietary recommendations is important for preventing gout exacerbation. This restriction of consumption: meat and fish products, beans, sorrel, spinach, cauliflower, raspberries, figs, chocolate, strong tea, coffee. It is forbidden to drink alcohol, especially wine and beer.

It is recommended to increase the volume of liquid to 2 liters per day, if there are no contraindications. This is cranberry juice, juices, alkaline mineral water. Gradual normalization of body weight is mandatory for the patient, as it helps to reduce the level of uric acid in the blood.

The purpose of drug treatment is to reduce pain during an attack and to treat disorders of purine metabolism.

During an acute attack of gout, the patient is recommended complete rest, especially a sick limb. It should be given an elevated position of the foot, attach a blister to the joint with ice, and after the abatement of pain - a warming compress. For treatment of an attack non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs( NSAIDs) are used. The drug, its dose, the frequency of reception, duration is recommended by the attending physician.

To achieve a persistent reduction in uric acid, which prevents the progression of gout, antipodal drugs( alopurinol, sulpharperazone, uralite etc.) are used. These drugs are used for a long time( years).The necessary drug is chosen by the attending physician individually for each patient, depending on the age, concomitant diseases, the level of uric acid in the blood.

In the formation of large tophi, with ulceration of the tissues, the presence of fistulas, surgical treatment is recommended - the removal of tofus, since they can no longer dissolve when taking antidotal drugs, and can significantly limit the function of the joints.

Physiotherapy for gout

In an acute period, applications of a dimexide solution on the affected joint are used. It has an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect. Before the beginning of the procedure, samples for sensitivity to dimexide( the presence of an allergic reaction) are conducted, after 24 hours after the procedure begins procedures. For applications, a 30-50% solution of dimexide is used( dilute pure dimime with boiled water).A napkin soaked in a solution is put on a sick joint. Initially, the duration of the procedure is 10 minutes, later it is increased to 2 hours. In the period of remission apply applications with mud, paraffin, ozocerite, which improves the function of joints, reduces the urate content in them.

During the remission period, the patients are shown sanatorium-and-spa treatment. On the health status of patients, the course of the disease has a beneficial effect of health activities: diet food, intake of alkaline mineral water, balneotherapy, mud therapy.

Phytotherapy for gout

In complex treatment with diet and antidotal drugs, phytotherapy is used. Infusion of leaves of cranberries( 1/2 glasses 3 times a day).Infusion of leaves of black currant( ½ cup 4-5 times a day).Infusion is prepared: 1 tablespoon of dry leaves for 500ml of boiling water, 2 hours, drain. Apply the fruits of blueberries.

Diet for gout

From the diet it is necessary to exclude or minimize foods and dishes containing large quantities of purines, since purines form uric acid.

Foods that need to be excluded: liver, kidneys, brains, lungs, meat of young animals, chicken, meat and fish broths. A patient with gout should refuse to take alcohol, as it inhibits the excretion of uric acid by the kidneys and thus helps to increase its concentration in the blood.

Foods that need to be restricted: beans( beans, peas, beans), sorrel, spinach, eggplant, radish, cauliflower, asparagus, mushrooms, crustaceans, caviar, fish( Baltic herring, sardines, etc.).Large fish are allowed.

The need for calories for gout should be met mainly by carbohydrates. In small quantities, the diet can contain eggs, flour and cereal dishes, low-fat fish, beef, lamb. Fish and meat dishes should be eaten in boiled form, not more often 2-3 times a week. One portion should not be more than 250 g. During an attack of arthritis, fish and meat must be completely ruled out. Food should contain the necessary amount of vitamins, so the broths of dogrose, lemons, apples, black currants are useful. Without restrictions, you can consume milk and dairy products, cereals( bread, cereals, bran), most vegetables( potatoes, carrots, cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, pumpkin, onions, carrots, beets, radish, celery), nuts, watermelons, melons,berries and fruits, spices. It is known that cherries, strawberries, currants and other dark red and blue berries reduce the concentration of uric acid in the blood, so are useful for gout in any form. In the absence of diseases of the kidneys and the heart, an abundant alkaline drink( 2-2.5 liters per day) is necessary, fruit and berry compotes, alkaline mineral water, are suitable for this purpose.

Prevention of gout

Patients suffering from gout are observed by a rheumatologist and a therapist( family doctor).Twice a year, they undergo a comprehensive examination( determination of the level of uric acid, creatinine).Kidney ultrasound and joint radiography are performed once a year.

Complications of gout

Early abnormalities in purine metabolism are reversible, provided timely diagnosis and treatment, but at the stage of chronic gout with organ damage( heart, brain, kidneys) the prognosis of the disease is unfavorable. Kidney damage develops in 30-50% of patients with gout. With persistent increase in the level of uric acid in each 4 patients with gout develops chronic renal failure.

Consultation of a doctor on the subject of gout

Vopr: Why does an exacerbation occur when taking antipodal drugs? Answer: At the beginning of treatment with antipodal drugs( more often allopurinol), acute gouty arthritis can occur due to the excretion of uric acid from the tissue depots of the body. Therefore, in order to prevent, it is necessary to prescribe simultaneously NSAIDs.

Question: How long should I take antidotal drugs if the level of uric acid is normal? Answer: Anti-gouty drugs are taken within a year, after which you can take a break for 2 months( with normal uric acid in your blood), provided that you follow a diet.

Gout: Treatment - on

bebi.ru must agree to foods rich in vitamin C, niacin and vitamin B1, as these substances can accelerate the excretion of urate from the body. In the up-and-down period and allowed to add to the menu all products, except those under strict prohibition.

It is necessary to remember that vegetable food containing purines will bring much less harm than single consumption of alcohol or a lot of meat, which can provoke another relapse of the disease.

The classic diet number 6 has the following list of allowed foods and dishes:

  • Bakery products can be consumed any but of course, outside large quantities. In rye bread there is a huge amount of amino acids, so it is better to give preference to him. As for everyone's favorite white bread, then from it a minimum. In addition to excess weight, white bread does not promise anything.
  • You can and need to eat soups, such as: beetroot, borsch and rassolnik. They enrich the body not only with proteins and fats, but also with vitamins, which are abundant in vegetables.
  • Meat and fish, too, must be eaten, but it is worth choosing such species that do not have a lot of fat. In other words, in priority poultry meat, rabbit meat, pike fish, perch, etc.
  • Fruits need to be eaten in large quantities. This is especially true for apples, because this fruit perfectly removes from the body settled toxins and toxins. On citrus, for obvious reasons, it is not necessary to heavily burden, but vitamin C, contained in them, is very necessary for a sick organism. Berries can also be eaten, in any form.
  • Vegetables contain a huge amount of vitamins. This is especially true for tomatoes, beets and carrots. They can be eaten without restrictions.
  • Entered into the body vitamins and trace elements should be immediately absorbed by the body. Helper in this matter can become green.
  • Grocery products should also be present in the diet, but we must not forget that it harms the figure.
  • Lactic acid foods should be present in the daily diet, because they contain calcium, zinc and magnesium. Moreover, cottage cheese and yogurt actively improve the work of the intestines, and this is extremely important in the treatment of gout.

Drinks

As already mentioned, carbonated beverages should be excluded. As an exception, we can name several names of mineral water, which are produced with minimal addition of gas. First of all, it is Borjomi and Essentuki # 17.These mineral waters perfectly affect the work of the stomach, but overuse with their use is not necessary, because they have a lot of salt.

As for juices, they are necessary for the body. In general, with gout, you can eat and drink everything that carries the vitamins. Gout weakens the body due to joint problems. Most of the body suffers from a lack of calcium and B vitamins. This deficiency, of course, can be replenished with the help of vitamin complexes, but the digestion process in this case will be significantly delayed.

This kind of diet is very welcome. Especially worth mentioning decoction of dogrose and cranberries. In tandem these two natural ingredients create a truly miraculous drink that actively cleanses the kidneys and the entire urinary system as a whole. This is the prevention of cystitis, urethritis and poliomyelitis, and an additional method of getting rid of gout, more precisely from its aggravation.

Diet No. 6 for gout

The therapeutic diet for gout involves the use of different dietary regimens for exacerbation of the disease and in a non-recurring period, differing by the total absence of meat, fish in the menu, and an increase in the proportion of vegetables and dairy products in the acute phase of gout.
